Why Kick Butt Female Book Charcters Are So Needed In Our Society

by Grace

Authors are starting to create more kickbutt female characters in their books. Why? Well I think there are alot of reasons why. One is because we need kick butt females characters in our books for teenage girls. And the reason why is because the female celebrities in our world are teaching young girls to be helpless to act stupid to let boys use them to their advantage. And the woman in our society think that is the right answer but IT IS NOT THE RIGHT ANSWER AT ALL.

Women in general are better then that. They deserve to be treating with respect they deserve to be equal to men. And some women in our society are realizing that and that’s why authors are making the main characters in books as kick butt females. And the teenage girls who read these kinds of  books are more likely to become that type of woman in those heroine books.

Anyways one book example for a heroine book is the Hunger Games Trilogy.  The Hunger Games Trilogy’s main character is a sixteen year old  kick butt female called Katniss Everdeen.  

Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sisters place Primrose Everdeen in the Annual “hunger games.“

What if Katniss didn’t take the place of  Primrose Everdeen in the Annual Hunger Games? Then the story wouldn’t be about Katniss Everdeen it would be about her little sister Primrose Everdeen. The Author put that event in the story so Katniss can be the main character. That’s how the Author made the story about Katniss Everdeen by Katniss taking her younger sister’s place in the Annual hunger games.

And that is the beginning of how Katniss started to become her heroine self. Through the call to adventure, taking her sister’s place in the Annual Hunger Games. Through all of the Hunger Games Trilogy she is very brave and courageous. At the end of the book one Katniss is one of the last survivors among the teenagers in the Hunger Games. Katniss is the definition of a heroine book character.


  1. Thank you!!! We are equal to men and we deserve to be treated with respect. Which is why I love when there are kick butt heroines. I've recently looked at different ways women are objectified and came down to media. I looked at magazines, the clothes that are "in" (tight jeans, leggings, crop tops, short shorts, etc.), then there are movies, shows, music, and the objectifying even goes down to dancing. I can keep going on and on because I am so passionate. But I totally agree with everything that was said. Good job!

  2. people should really stop portraying women as objectives and little wusses. I mean, ever heard of girl power?! girls should be depicted as having enough self respect to dress modestly and the strength to take care of themselves. yes, the heroines show strength, but not so much modesty. lets work on that, society!
    kudos to you, Grace! great work!

  3. I completely agree with everything that has been said. The objectifying in our culture has gone way too far. I also agree that female protagonists in media are portrayed bad examples for both male and female youth. I want the misogynist with males to end!

  4. I feel the same way! I agree that females deserve more credit then they get! GIRL POWER!!!!!! -Mickey

  5. I agree with you! We need kickbutt females on our world and people should stop treating women as objects.

  6. I don't disagree. I used to have a huge problem with objectification that came from an addiction. Now that I'm over it, i can actually have some female friends. Some of them are actually beat me up, and I'm 6'1, 200 lbs.

  7. Finally our society begins to give women the attention and citizenship they deserved! It wasn't until 1911 that an amendment was passed allowing women the right to vote. That is one reason of why I really like the Hunger Games books and movies. Just watched Mockingjay Part 1 in theaters about two weeks ago. Loved it and all the other movies and books. Keep going women!
